Bro Marius Ensign,
Dear Sir,

Your wife Mary Catharine called upon me about the 6th Ultimo, and solicited a Bill of Divorce, from you which I issued at her instance; and upon receipt of this you will find it enclosed, which you will please to sign opposite the pencil Mark, (thus X) your full name, and having done so, enclose the full Schedule in an envelope addressed to me, so that I may secure the signature of your wife, when that is obtained, your portion of the bill will be forwarded to you by the first opportunity.

I Remain

Your Brother in the Gospel
